Attacked for drinking alcohol in the city of beer
A huge fight broke out outside a pita bar at the Rooseveltplaats in Antwerp, Belgium, because two Flemish gentlemen were drinking alcohol in the city they call home.

The two men, a father and his son, were sitting on the terrace drinking alcohol but that was not to the liking of the owner, who is against alcohol because of his religion. The argument turned into a serious fight.
“The manager had approached the men about their behavior and then a scuffle started. It looked like a massive brawl but apparently there were also a lot of bystanders.”
“The two men were taken to hospital for treatment for their injuries. One of them also had a broken arm, so the consequences can be termed serious,” said spokesman Wouter Bruyns.
It appears from the video that the two men were also hit with chairs as they tried to leave the establishment.
Conservative politician Filip Dewinter, member of Vlaams Belang, posted a video of the brawl on Twitter. He also interviewed the 62-year-old Eddie, pensioner and victim of the attack.

According to Eddie, they had ordered sandwiches, and had brought along their own drinks because the establishment does not sell alcohol. Soon some 15 Muslim men started attacking the pair because they were drinking alcohol.
It seems odd to be attacked for drinking alcohol in Antwerp, since beer is one of the city’s main attractions with literally hundreds of craft beers available from the many breweries situated there.
De Winter urged Flemish residents to vote against the city’s rising crime. He called the immigrants “crimmigrants” saying they were responsible for the increase in criminality.
The video is extremely hard to find on YouTube, suggesting that there may be a deliberate attempt at suppressing visual material that contradicts the government’s official narrative.
In Kortrijk, next to Antwerp, the Vlaams Belang organised a rally over the weekend against a planned mega mosque. Neighbourhood protests against 5200 m2 large new mosque that will cost €4.8 million have steadily been growing.

The Ursula von der Leyen Affair
After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn.

Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
Care prompts bishops to criticize transgender ideology

Cardinal Anders Arborelius, Bishop of Stockholm, is one of the signatories of the document.
Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold
Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs. People are forced to choose between freezing or going hungry, and a majority of Scots are forced to live in cold and darkness to cope with bills. Old generations' tricks for saving and keeping warm are returning. Nevertheless, it is feared that 10,000 Brits will die of cold homes this winter. We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases. Net-zero emissions are a lie that, in practice, de-industrializes the West and dramatically lowers our standard of living.
